Reader comment on item: My Debate with London Mayor Ken Livingstone
in response to reader comment: A word about "moderates"

Submitted by donvan (United States), Jan 26, 2007 at 17:22

Both the socialist left and the Islamic share the same delusion. That some place, some how, there absolutely must be the an ideological utopia. As Horowitz points out, this delusional thinking is in spite of the fact that a utopia does not exist, has never existed and will never exist. No matter, Muhammed and Marx share the same belief in forcing the masses into some form of collective. In the case of Muhammed, the collective is Islam, with the socialists, it is communism. It is the free choices made by individuals without threat of violence or coersion. It is this notion that the socialist/Islam alliance embraces most closely. Neither can exist without the destruction of the liberty and freedom of the individual. First, destroy the notion of God given freedoms, press, speech, life,liberty. The enslavement is easier if the masses have no "Inalienable rights"
